Made in St. Charles County
For the past two years the SCC CAPS program and Lindenwood DECA program have partnered in a client project. The goal is to create an ongoing partnership to improve economic development in St. Charles County. This year the project was to assist the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce with a marketing program called Made in St. Charles County.
The mission of Made in Saint Charles County is to bring awareness to locally owned businesses in hopes the community will take advantage of the goods and services being sold. This website was created by four St. Charles County CAPS associates with assistance with Lindenwood University DECA students. In addition, Scott Tate, President of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce, and Craig Felzien, Director of Duree Center for Entrepreneurship at Lindenwood University, provided support for the project.
